Specialists in Serious Fraud and Complex Criminal Defence
Money Laundering Solicitors
Many of the provisions of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 impact upon individuals and businesses going about their everyday activities. These have been described as draconian provisions and place onerous obligations on businesses. The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 covers any business which handles large cash payments for goods or services. It also affects professional businesses within the Regulated Sector.
For example, money service bureaus are now required to register with HM Customs and Excise before they can continue to trade. Businesses will be required to introduce procedures to protect themselves from being used to launder money. Money laundering is defined as a process by which money obtained from criminal activity is exchanged for clean money or other assets with no obvious link to their criminal origins.
Even the most careful and experienced business person can find themselves on the wrong side of these regulations. Quite often innocent businesses are used by criminals in order to facilitate their money laundering.
Our team of confiscation & money laundering solicitors and experts at MPR Solicitors have built up considerable experience and have the support of teams of accountants and barristers and other professionals in order to mount a positive and proactive defence.
